Bible Study Notes on Exodus 8 – 20181106

Exodus 8:1  "...Thus says the LORD..." He doesn't use other names, but His own.  He makes sure Pharaoh knows exactly Who he's dealing with. 2  "...all your territory with frogs" Not just in and around the palace, but all of Egypt's territory.  That's a tall order.  Would be obvious around the water, but not so …

Bible Study Notes on Exodus 7 – 20181105

Exodus 7:1  "...I have made you as God to Pharaoh..." Representative.  Someone Pharaoh could see.  Too bad Moses had to have Aaron there.  Might have had more impact if Pharaoh were speaking directly to "God" instead of through a "prophet."  Should inspire us to obey what God says.  We know He only does the absolute …

Bible Study Notes on Exodus 6 – 20181031

Exodus 6:1  "...Now you shall see what I will do..." Moses gave Pharaoh the ultimatum as God had instructed.  Pharaoh didn't let the people go as God said he wouldn't, but Moses didn't anticipate Pharaoh increasing the oppression on the Hebrews.  When he did, the Hebrews blamed Moses.  So Moses complained to God.  God was …

Bible Study Notes on Exodus 5 – 20181028

Exodus 5:1  "...Moses and Aaron went in and told Pharaoh..." Did as they were instructed.  Without Moses excuses it would have been just him.  Makes you wonder if he would have been more effective on his own before Pharaoh, would God have used him alone more effectively. 2  "...Who is the LORD, that I should …

Bible Study Notes on Exodus 4 – 20181026

Exodus 4:1  "But suppose..." Still in the conversation between God and Moses.  And Moses is making more excuses.  Can't be too hard on him.  I'd be asking the same questions.  But what if.  Always afraid of the unknown and trying to figure things out before they get here.  Shows lack of trust and is a …

Bible Study Notes on Exodus 3 – 20181022

Exodus 3:1  "...Jethro his father-in-law..." Different from Reuel in the last chapter.  Obviously the man had multiple names which isn't unusual, have three myself.  But why did the writer use two, and why use the ones he did when he did?  Interesting.  Commentaries say the Hebrew word translated as father-in-law actually means relation by marriage, …

Bible Study Notes on Exodus 2:11-25 – 20181018

Exodus 2:11  "...went out to his brethren..." He identified with the Hebrews. 11  "...looked on their hard labors..." God was already moving his heart to compassion toward his people, but he would take matters into his own hands. 12  "...he struck down the Egyptian and hid him in the sand" Murdered him.  Moses was guilty …
